S/V Sunrise is a Texas based 1989 Solaris Sunrise Catamaran for sale by owner

I recently purchased S/V "Sunrise" with the intention of cruising Central America and beyond and have been living aboard preparing the boat for such a cruise. She is not that far from ready and a dedicated cruiser would have her ready in quick order. Alas, plans have changed and I have reluctantly put her up for sale.

The Solaris Sunrise 36 was built in the UK at South Hampton in 1989, as a stout, conservative cruiser whose beam (15ft 10") allowed it to traverse the French Canal system. Despite her medium size she is capable of large ocean passages. "Sunrise" is in good condition for her age and a recent haulout revealed the hulls in excellent condition with no blisters in the gelcoat.

This catamaran for sale by owner is cutter rigged with roller furling for the genoa and stay sail with all lines leading to the cockpit allowing for solo sailing. The dual 18hp Yanmar diesels with saildrives allow easy maneuvering in tight quarters and sip but .85 gallons/hour together at 6 knots. Engines have been recently serviced and are in good running order. There is a Raymarine autopilot, radar, chartplotter, and GPS.

There are two queen berths aft ( one ensuite) and two single berths forward (one with sink and shower). The galley in the starboard hull communicates easily with the salon with full standing headroom throughout. A previous owner installed AirCon (and heat) which spoils you dockside.

The Solaris Sunrise 36 gets compliments on its style and uniqueness wherever she goes. This is a great cruiser waiting for someone to raise her sails and get going!
